Look Up!

Alicia Keys performed a new song called “Not Even A King” at the MTV Upfronts event a few days ago, modeling a sky-high updo—just the look for warmer days ahead! Use Alicia’s style as a mane inspiration but also consider these fabulous upswept options:

  • The high topknot
  • The ballerina chignon nestled at the nape
  • The tall ponytail
  • The chic French twist.

BTW, the singer is hard at work on a new album and we’re wondering what type of hairstyle she’ll wear for the CD cover? Perhaps she’s testing out a new CD cover look here? Thoughts?
